We are delighted to invite you, your leadership team and your staff to the GA Association Workshop 2016, which will take place Saturday 28 May 2016, the day prior to the World Public Relations Forum.

The world’s public relations and communication management associations will gather to share and discuss best practices around association sustainability and development. This will include membership recruitment and retention, member and volunteer engagement and financial sustainability. This sessionwill be facilitated by our member IABC and will also include best practices from PROCOM (Finland).

We will also continue the work on capabilities frameworks that we first started in Lugano in 2014. A lot has been achieved since we started collating the national bodies of knowledge and we will discuss a way toward achieving a global framework.

The event is from 9.30 am until 5.15 pm, followed by the GA Annual General Meeting and a cocktail reception at the Presidential Suite of The Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto.

Please review the schedule and indicate your intention to attend by writing to Désirée Haupts (desiree.haupts@usi.ch) by 5 May 2016 indicating “Association Workshop” in the object.

Also make sure that you book your hotel room by tomorrow to secure your discounted rate (see below).
